Mentoring

Empowering your authentic self to express its creative spirit and explore a life of purpose.

I help creative minds, self-explorers and ambitious individuals embark on a journey of discovery and empowerment. We’ll work together to explore your unique value, deepen your self-awareness and discover pathways to a vibrant, fulfilling life.

Dedicated mind-body mentoring sessions are an opportunity to receive expansive guidance and holistic tools for your personal, creative and professional practices. You’ll learn to:

Tap into your body’s wisdom
Discover how your body holds answers to roadblocks and guides you towards inspired action. Learn to listen to its subtle language and unlock your full potential, fostering personal growth and a sense of deep wellbeing.

Dissolve blockages
Say goodbye to self-doubt and limiting beliefs. We’ll work together to melt away these barriers and (re)ignite your spark, fostering a sense of flow and progress.

Cultivate daily rituals
Create practices that nourish your wellbeing and potential, even on the busiest days. Discover how small, daily rituals can significantly impact your creative wellspring.

Align your work with your values
Learn to align your actions and choices with your core values. Craft work that resonates deeply with you and your audience, while navigating fear and change with confidence.

Embrace your authentic voice
Develop the confidence to express your unique voice and share your gifts authentically with the world. Explore ways to overcome self-doubt and connect with your true essence.

Embark on a soulful exploration of somatic practice, insightful conversation and intuitive support. This experience blends embodied learning with practical guidance, drawing from over 9 years of design and communication expertise and grounded in Mind-Body Coaching techniques.

You’ll gain actionable strategies and practical tools to thrive in your personal, creative and business pursuits, including:

  • Clarity, intention and direction
  • Self-awareness and self-enquiry for greater wellbeing
  • Creative and reflective practices
  • Mind-body connection practices
  • Emotional release, stress relief and self-care
  • Relationships and communication
  • Arts practices, branding, marketing and design

How does it flow?

Each person is unique and we are all differently resourced. You may like to book as you go or invest in a container for greater accountability and momentum. I also offer payment plans and can help find a solution that empowers you to take this leap.

Testimonials

I almost can’t believe I have such an empathetic, visionary and nurturing mentor in my corner. Shannon finds ways to gently steer me to my goals both creative and personal, despite the challenges my ADHD, ASD and anxiety present on my path. She creates a safe space where my messy, too-much brain is celebrated for its superpowers instead of shamed for its struggles.

Nirrimi Firebrace, multidisciplinary artist

I originally started working with Shannon to get clarity on aspects of my business, but the insights and knowledge she brings have helped me in all areas of my life. She is a smart, kind, gentle, beautiful, open-minded human and always makes me feel calm and at ease.

Georgina McKay, designer

Shannon has not only provided me with practical help from her years of experience in the design industry … she has also journeyed with me beyond the surface to look at how aspects or parts of my personality are influencing my work and personal life—and how all of these parts are interconnected. Her gentle guidance makes what could be a daunting experience a very calm and enlightening one.

Maggie Johnson, artist

I feel so fortunate to have met Shannon. Sometimes the universe delivers at the perfect moment. Shannon’s beautiful, gentle nature has been just what I needed. As my creative mentor she has guided me around stumbling blocks that were standing in the way of realising my potential as a full-time maker and a confident artist.

Sally Smith, Deep Earth Ceramics

Common Questions

How are sessions conducted?

I offer both online and in-person sessions depending on your preference and commitment level.

Booking session by session: These sessions are conducted online via video call, similar to Zoom. This option offers flexibility for those who prefer to schedule sessions as needed.

Mentoring container: For individuals seeking a deeper commitment and more focused support, I offer both in-person and online options as part of a structured mentoring program. This allows you to choose the format that best suits your lifestyle and needs (and may change from week to week).

I don’t have a creative business or practice. Is this for me?

Absolutely! Mentoring isn’t limited to those with established creative businesses or practices. Whether you’re an aspiring artist, a curious soul yearning for self-discovery or someone seeking to infuse more creative thinking into your life, mentoring can offer valuable insights, guidance, and support.

Our sessions are tailored to meet you where you are on your journey. Together, we’ll uncover and cultivate the unique gifts and potential within you, empowering you to live a more vibrant and fulfilling life.

What can I ask you about?

You’re encouraged to bring forth any topics, challenges or aspirations that are resonating with you. Whether you’re seeking guidance on navigating creative blocks, exploring personal growth and self-discovery or strategising ways to align your values with your work, no question is off-limits.

Our sessions are designed to be a safe and supportive space where you can freely explore, reflect and grow. Well consider a wide range of subjects, including but not limited to:

  • Unblocking creativity and finding inspiration
  • Setting and achieving personal or professional goals
  • Cultivating mindfulness and self-awareness practices
  • Navigating transitions and life changes
  • Balancing creativity with self-care and wellbeing
  • Exploring ways to infuse creativity into daily life
  • Building resilience and overcoming challenges
Can I contact you between sessions?

If you have a question related to our work together and have a future session booked, feel free to reach out to me. This could be something like: “Shan, I’m experiencing [relevant situation], and I’m wondering if you have any suggestions based on what we discussed in our last session.”

Can you review my design and marketing materials?

Sure! I offer design, marketing and communications support beyond the scope of our existing mentoring agreement. I can assist by providing feedback on design assets or reviewing communications materials. I work in 15-minute increments billed at a rate of $80/hour (+GST). Chat with me about your specific needs, and I’ll be happy to provide a personalised quote.

How do I ensure sessions fit my schedule?

Whether you’re booking sessions individually or participating in a mentoring container (6 weeks or 6 months), you have control over your schedule!

Booking session by session: Select your preferred time from a calendar of available slots.

Mentoring container participants: For guaranteed preferred days and times, I recommend scheduling your sessions in advance. You can choose a recurring schedule that fits your needs (e.g., same day each week) or one that accommodates your other commitments, all within the program timeframe (6–8 weeks for Homecoming, 6–7 months for Soulcraft).

What if I can’t fit my sessions in the timeframe?

The ideal timeframe is 6-8 weeks for Homecoming and 6-8 months for Soulcraft. Maintaining momentum is crucial for lasting change, so prioritising attending sessions within this timeframe is highly recommended. However, if unforeseen circumstances arise, please reach out. We’ll work together to find a solution that supports your progress and maximises your experience.

Is coaching confidential?

During our coaching sessions, everything you share is kept entirely confidential. This means you can feel free to be completely open and honest, which is essential for your success and the trust we build together.
